I don't wear watches. But if I did, it'd be a Vacheron Constantin Overseas.

I always wear Timex digital watches. My watches tend to get beat up and scratched a lot, so if I ruin one, it's only like $20 lost. Otherwise, they're comfortable, have nice bright screens (the reflective green background really helps!) with an easy interface.
I have a couple of nice expensive watches, but only wear them on special occasions so they don't get ruined.

Don't wear watches, but if I did, it would probably be a cheap Fossil of sorts.

I have 3 Swatch Irony watches. One I bought a few years ago, a real tank. I now use it when I work around the house.
The other 2 are made in aluminum. Very solid and lightweight. One is dark blue (my regular watch) the other one is classic grey aluminum (I wear it for special occasions).

Tag Heuer 6000 series

My brother gave this to me. Absolutely one of the finest watches in the world. It's like 15 years old and it's still in excellent condition. Expensive as hell though, but I think it was worth it.

Indeed. Classic designs clean and uncluttered. The time and date, pretty much all I need. Though the day of the week would have been nice on mine for those mornings when I really need help.

Pic basically the same except it's not a 'Seamaster' - just a classic Omega Automatic. Classic, clean design.


Was my Father's 21st present. He's passed it on to me (he's still going strong but now has a Rolex). I like it's retro look.

Seiko Titanium. Very nice present. I've heard the new ones are made of Aluminium instead and are suffering from white blotches on the face. No, wait a minute, that was something else...

a mont blanc vintage reserve de marche (mechanical movement, manual winding); it was purchased to commemorate a memorable trip to the EU.

It can difficult to find mechanical movements these days; and I'm old fashioned and like to wind the watch each morning to start the day

Wenger a swiss watch, 100 bucks, day and date.

I was looking all over the place for a really nice one (was willing to drop 500 bucks) but everyone of them all looked to BLING BLING. I can't stand stainless and gold or polished stainless, it makes my skin crawl. This one also is relatively thin so it doesn't get in the way much.

I GOT WASTED WITH PHIL SHERRY!!!

I don't like wearing watches. I feel like I have to keep checking it all the time.

However, I did buy myself an Apple watch when I was at the Mother Ship for WWDC.

I have watches for any and all occasions, but the one I am wearing now, and wear most often, is a Swiss Army (Victorinox) Striker. I've been wearing it daily for at least ten years, and it's seen more than it's share of abuse, but it still works like a charm.

Dammit, I think I just participated in my first 'anklebrains market survey'.

I'm sort of a watch addict, I'm wearing an old Breitling watch right now, it's not mine but I may wear it. It's a very simple watch and doesn't look like the new breitling chrono's. When I'm not wearing my Breitling I'm wearing a simple Rodania Titanium.

I'm a big fan of Fossil Blue watches. I've had two. The first one lasted me 4 years before I lost it so I bought a much cooler one with a bubble-shaped face 2 years ago. I've since found the old lost one but I like the new one so much better. People see it and comment on it as if its an expensive watch. It only cost $65 at the mall. The first one cost me $40 at a Fossil outlet store.

My only gripe is that occasionally the watches would open up on me. My watch hasn't done it to me in a long time though.

I've ran through several batteries on both watches (although I don't wear the old one anymore). I'm happy that I bought the newer one at the mall because it turns out that battery replacements are forever free at the place that I bought my watch. That means that if I keep this watch another 4 years this watch will have saved $30 in battery replacements, almost half the price of the watch.

DKNY. Has a background that changes between mirrored silver to a kind of murky brown green with DKNY embossed on it. Picked it up on a MacWorld trip to NY about 2 years ago.

Never seen them here in the UK and it still gets the looks.
